Oregon state lawmakers are considering a bill that would provide homeless people with $1,000 a month with no strings attached.
Does one have to wonder why so many people in Oregon are trying to secede to the state of Idaho?
If Oregon wants to be the homeless capital of the nation, this is a great way to do it.
Oregon bill would pay homeless people $1,000 a month
The state of Oregon is weighing a bill to give homeless and low-income people $1,000 a month in Universal Basic Income.
The Oregon Legislature is considering a bill to establish a People’s Housing Assistance Fund Demonstration Program through the state Department of Human Services.
Oregon’s bill is the latest from blue states seeking to donate to people participating in Universal Basic Income (UBI) programs.
According to Bill Track 50, the legislation would “provide 12 monthly payments of $1,000 to people who are homeless, at risk of homelessness, heavily burdened by rent, or earning at least 60% of the area’s median income.”
The bill would require a study of who gets the money broken down by a few demographics, including race, veteran status and risk of domestic violence.
Additionally, the bill expires in January 2026.
The $1,000 payments can be used at the recipients’ discretion, but supporters say they will be used for rent and other living expenses.
Anyone with a brain knows that a lot of that money will be spent on booze and drugs, not rent and living expenses.
Like we haven’t paid enough of our taxes to the homeless.
Why don’t we give them $1000/month in housing vouchers? Housing first, right?
Most will end up in the hands of drug traffickers.https://t.co/PievuzR4eq

How many people can the three West Coast states afford to lose to emigration?
Do they expect illegal aliens to make up for the shortfall?

We’re going to give homeless people $1,000 a month for a year. After that, we will grant extensions so drug dealers don’t go bankrupt.https://t.co/baWZDmkxsq

Absolute madness, and it’s done on purpose.
